1 Leadership and Church Partnership Information Thank you for your interest in partnering with Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. to walk alongside, equip and care for those who struggle with addiction. People are lost in the hopelessness of their sin but through Christ s work on the cross there is freedom. We have the unique privilege to serve people who have been conditioned by our culture to think that they are sick with a disease and have been told that no one understands their problem. The scriptures clearly present Christ and Him crucified as the solution for anyone ensnared by sin, including addicts (James 1 describes this). Redeemed2Repeat believes that God s Word is sufficient for all things (2 Timothy 3:15-17). R2R is not a step program with rituals or checklists; instead, our mission is to help people engage with the Savior who can rescue all. This mission is accomplished through the power of Christ, genuine fellowship with believers in the local church and the belief that Christ has given us everything for life and godliness through knowledge of Him who called us (2 Peter 1:3). As we navigate through the practical how-to s of this mission, we understand that each person s story and situation is different, but the hope and help, the solution, is the same for everyone - the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. One of the practical tools being used within Redeemed2Repeat to bring this message of the gospel is Hope for Addiction, our weekly support group meeting. The mission of this meeting is: In a loving and grace-filled environment, we will share the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ and explore its daily application in the lives of those struggling with addiction. In short, we help addicts meet Jesus who has the power to transform them and give them hope. Hope for Addiction presents practical tools for how to apply God s Word to every day struggles. Our culture conditions us to believe that we are unique and no one understands us. We help people see they are just like everyone else and their real issue is not addiction, but sin. And the solution for sin is to understand that Jesus died to rescue us from sin. Connecting people to the truth of God s Word and building a bridge to the local church are secondary goals. Church Partnership Packet and Application, Revised 2/2016 Copyright 2016 Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. 1

2 Each meeting topic will include three themes: 1) Gospel (Jesus died for my sins), 2) honest reflection (my need for a Savior/repentance) and, 3) connection with community/local church/ living life with brothers and sisters in Christ. The topics/lessons have been created using God s Word as well as various authors (Paul David Tripp, Ed Welch, Mark E Shaw, John Piper and others). The lessons have been pastorally reviewed and are approved for presentation. While each group will develop its own personality and leadership will vary, the lessons will be followed as closely as possible to maintain the integrity of the mission of Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. As each group grows, there may be topics that the leader would like to submit for consideration. We welcome each group s input! Redeemed2Repeat is committed to helping people overcome addictions through the transforming power of grace. We believe that men and women can be transformed and experience freedom from addictions as they interact with the Savior and become invested in the local church for ongoing discipleship, biblical teaching and community. We are excited to see what God does in you and your church as you serve hurting people who struggle with addiction. Amazed by His grace, Liz Beck President/Director Church Partnership Packet and Application, Revised 2/2016 Copyright 2016 Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. 2

3 We believe/our Values: The power of Christ has given us everything we need for life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). In Christ we have a new identity, we are no longer identified by our addiction or our sin (2 Corinthians 5:17). Our life is about growing in our knowledge of God, not about pursuing sobriety. Sobriety will bean outcome of obedience to Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit at work within us (Colossians 1:9-10, Galatians 5:16). We live in Christian community so we may be built up, encouraged in our faith and grow in our knowledge of God (Colossians 2:7, Hebrews 10:24-25, Galatians 6:1). All Christians, even recovering addicts, need to be meaningfully involved in a local church (Ephesians 4). The good news of the gospel is, not only can we be saved by Christ, but that we are being renewed into the image of Christ, making the gospel central for all of life. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that God created human beings, male and female, in his own image. Men and women are made equally in God s image and both have equal access to God by faith in Christ Jesus. God ordains distinctive roles that reflect the loving relationship between Christ and the church. What does partnership and leadership look like with Redeemed2Repeat? Some things to consider before you move forward with the attached application: 1) Long-term commitment is necessary in order to effectively help people as they rebuild their lives. You should expect to be in this for the long haul. Real help is not a quick fix. This is about God s work and sometimes we aren t able to quickly see fruit. Redeemed2Repeat will assist you in appropriate boundaries but it is essential that you be ready to participate for an extended time. We understand that seasons of life change but we take our care of people seriously. Commitment includes but is not limited to: Church Partnership Packet and Application, Revised 2/2016 Copyright 2016 Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. 3

4 a. Orientation/training conducted by Redeemed2Repeat (prior to launch of meeting). b. Three-month evaluation meeting with Redeemed2Repeat staff. c. Annual training conducted by Redeemed2Repeat. d. Prepare and lead Hope for Addiction meeting each week. e. Maintaining at least a touch point with all regular attendees to be able to care for them and effectively connect them with someone to disciple them. Provide encouragement and opportunities to connect within the local church (small group, serving, fellowship, etc). f. Regular communication/reporting to Redeemed2Repeat with the purpose of bringing glory to God for His work, providing information for Redeemed2Repeat donors, open dialog on how Redeemed2Repeat can better support the local group. g. Regular reporting to hosting church pastor or pastor representative. h. Alert R2R Director of difficult or dangerous situations. i. Annual dues of $500 (which provides training, support, lessons, printed invitation cards and branding artwork). 2) Redeemed2Repeat desires to partner with leaders who exhibit gospel-focused living and are supported and recommended by their pastor to lead and host a Hope for Addiction meeting. 3) All leadership team members must complete the Biblical Counseling and Discipleship Training course. This is a vital resource taught by Trey Richardson (pastoral care at Sovereign Grace Church, Gilbert). This course will give you practical tools for helping people, application of God s Word, caring for your own soul as you minister and, will equip you as you walk alongside people who s lives are messy. Church Partnership Packet and Application, Revised 2/2016 Copyright 2016 Redeemed2Repeat, Inc. 4

5 4) All leadership team members must complete Redeemed2Repeat training. This is done in conjunction with the Biblical Counseling and Discipleship Training and will be completed prior to launching a Hope for Addiction meeting. Annual training/ equipping opportunities will also be made available. 5) Believe in and follow the mission of Redeemed2Repeat as presented in this document. We are open to suggestions for growth but the mission, vision and purpose must remain consistent. 6) Each church situation will vary and there will be appropriate guidelines within each church as to who is eligible for leadership. These items will be discussed and agreed upon during the application and training process. 7) Redeemed2Repeat will provide all lessons and meeting outlines. 8) Redeemed2Repeat will provide printed invitation cards. Additional materials will be the responsibility of the hosting church. Please consult with Redeemed2Repeat staff before creating printed or social media materials. It is important to maintain proper branding. After prayerfully considering this, if you would like to pursue partnership with Redeemed2Repeat, please complete the attached application and submit to: Redeemed2Repeat, Inc.
